    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm not sure, I will say that they are on par with Borrelli/Brioni that I have.[​IMG]

    I don't know either, but they are among the best ties I own.

    Franco Bassi; Amazing ties...

    I really think they are better than Brioni ties.

    Italo Ferretti reportedly makes Brioni ties, though I read on the forum that Brioni has a new maker for the current season.

    On their site does "clients" mean stores that they make ties for (private label) or sell ties to. I ask because I have a real well made Bergdorf tie and they are listed as a client of Bassi, along with Paul Stuart and Barneys.
